Melons originated in Africa and were prized as a source of ‘portable water’. But not only are melons a cool summer snack, they are packed with vital nutrients too. The firm cantaloupe is full of potassium, the red-fleshed varieties contain lycopene for heart benefits and casabas help maintain your metabolism. Melons also reduce inflammation and provide a rainbow of vitamins. Your customers can’t lose! Whether it be the honeydew, Persian, seeded or seedless watermelons, the choice is vast, the taste divine. As a further benefit – melon seeds may be roasted and enjoyed as a snack similar to sunflower seeds.
